Sue S | Company Anniversary | Elizabethan
Plamena was incredibly supportive in the build up to our anniversary party on the Elizabethan, nothing was too much trouble for her. The quality and presentation of the food was superb, while the service, politeness and helpfulness of the waiting staff was exemplary. Our guests were wanting for nothing and we've had many cards and letters of thanks and praise from them. The Elizabethan was quite charming and so beautifully prepared, it was a perfect venue for us. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the experience to our friends and colleagues.
Maya | Corporate Event | Dixie Queen
The boat was incredible with amazing staff on board. The applying and removing of our company branding on the vessel was super easy and your team were very accommodating, while the opening of Tower Bridge was an epic experience for guests. Overall the event was a huge success, with a great turnout of attendees and great support from your staff. Thank you once again for all your support for such an incredible and impactful event for our business. It was really a pleasure working with you!
Shirley F | Summer Party | Edwardian
Thank you for all of your help contributing to a wonderful evening. Our summer party was a hit regardless of the rain, we all had a fabulous time. Simon was very attentive and the bar staff, catering staff and chef surpassed all expectations. The feedback on the food was really very positive, everyone said it was delicious. I would absolutely recommend the Edwardian to everyone!
Barnett H | Birthday Party | Elizabethan
We had a fantastic time. The boat looked great, the captain reacted so quickly as the weather improved with opening up the roof, the waiting staff were so friendly and professional, and the food exceeded our wildest expectations. I would not hesitate in recommending your company and this boat in particular – in fact, I already have! Thank you for all your attention to detail, it paid off.
Janet T | Anniversary Party | Edwardian
Thank you so much for organising our party aboard Edwardian. From the minute we boarded at Butler’s Wharf Pier we felt in safe hands: Cruz was charming and very well organised, the catering staff and the chefs in the galley were calm and hardworking with a smile, and they looked very smart in black. The captain and engineer were experienced, professional, and very approachable. And it didn't rain!
We had a fantastic party, the food was delicious and the drinks were constantly refilled. All our guests said it was a fantastic way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, so please pass on our thanks to everyone.
Land & Water Services | Meeting & Conference Cruise | Elizabethan
A lovely experience, with well trained and welcoming staff. Great food, great facilities, a lovely vessel, and you even brought the weather!
Third Bridge | Company Party | Dixie Queen
We had the most amazing day on the Dixie Queen and I want to personally thank you and the entire team for making it an absolute resounding success! Angela was a superstar and the food was outstanding. We also enjoyed the band and the caricaturist. I hope that we will have another opportunity to book with you in the future and we will definitely recommend the Dixie Queen!
Katie S | Wedding Reception | Edwardian
I wanted to say a massive thank you for our event, everything was perfect. Your team on the boat were so lovely and helpful, it was such a pleasure. We had a great night and my guests were blown away with it all. Despite a little bit of rain we still had a great time and couldn’t believe how quickly it went. It really was fantastic and I can’t thank you enough!
Sarah T | Birthday Party | Elizabethan
A huge thank you for the most amazing evening on the Elizabethan. Everything was completely perfect; the boat looked stunning, all the food was absolutely delicious, as was the wine, and every little detail was just right. Simon, Asta and the whole team on board simply couldn’t have been more friendly or professional. And the help and advice from Plamena in the build-up was spot on.
I felt thoroughly spoiled all night and time went far too quickly, although we all had time for dancing after dinner! Most importantly all my friends had a fantastic time. A truly unforgettable way to start life as a 50-something.
I want to say a huge thanks for your support and help on the boat banquet. The conference was a great success for our group and all our guests were very impressed by the vessel and food. I look forward to future collaboration with you.
Melanie P | Birthday Party | Elizabethan
I just wanted to pass on a quick note to say thank you for everything. All of our guests had a fantastic day and everyone was most impressed with the friendly and helpful way in which the crew carried out their work. The food was delicious, so a big thank you to the caterers too. The Elizabethan is a lovely boat and we would recommend it to anyone with a party of our size upwards.
Nick T | Summer Party | Edwardian
Just wanted to say the team on the boat were fantastic! They had everything in hand, really helped with operational ideas on the night and were friendly to all. Please pass on my thanks to the crew once again!
Robert S | Birthday Party | Elizabethan
TLC provided a first-rate service throughout all my dealings with them. All 116 of my guests were unanimous in their praise for the standard of the boat, the food, and particularly the service, cooperation and help rendered. I would certainly recommend the company to any other potential charterer.
David W | Party Boat | Dixie Queen
An excellent charter, impressive attention to detail, a beautifully turned out vessel and exceptionally friendly and efficient crew, staff and officers. Outstanding service!
Brave Bison | Company Party | Edwardian
We all had a wonderful time on the Edwardian, all of our staff were very impressed! The food was lovely, the service excellent and it is a lovely vessel. We thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to anyone!
David C | Birthday Party | Elizabethan
The boat is lovely and the bowl food was good and nicely served. The staff that helped plan the event, including working from two different piers and accommodating our own band, were really helpful. The team at TLC enabled the whole thing to be a success and I can't thank them enough.
Ralph S | Meeting & Conference Cruise | Edwardian
I chartered the Edwardian for a three hour Thames cruise for 50 American visitors. Everything went exceptionally well, thanks to good detailed planning from a delightful team at TLC (great acronym for a services company!). A very good lunch was served on board and the crew were most pleasant and helpful. I hope to repeat the experience next year.
